ok we know when a dhd is hooked to the gate and theres more than one gate on the planetthat the travler goes to the gate with the dhd well why didnt the teams travel to the artic ate it had a dhd and sg teams never traveld there until jack and sam got stranded that doesnt make cents

I don't mean to be an ass about it but man can you please use better English?

Ok, so we know that when a DHD is hooked up to the gate and there's more than one gate on the planet that the traveller goes to the gate with the DHD. Why then didn't the teams travel to the Arctic gate? It had a DHD and SG teams never travelled there until Jack and Sam got stranded. That doesn't make sense.

The Goa'uld weapons caused a gate malfunction which diverted them to Antarctica

IMO - the reason the antarctic gate was not dominant is because the dhd was faulty

I'm not either, it's just that since text is our only means of communicating, you could make more effort. When I speak to someone on the phone, they are reliant on my clear pronunciation, so I make efforts to be understandable. Here, it is text we rely on.

One possible reason could be that the DHD was damaged. Remember Carter trying to fix it? If a DHD is not functioning right, it's corresponding gate may not work either. So that's probably why the Antarctic gate never activated until Carter and Jack got sent there when the SGC's gate malfunctioned.

interesting. that'd work if they didnt have any more incoming wormholes that episode. i dunno if they did... did they? cuz if they did... then the wormwhole should have gone to the antarctic gate... but assuming they didnt get any more that episode... kudos on the theory! i was always wondering why the antarctic gate wasn't used in the past.
